The Carnation 4th of July Committee is excited for the 2018 Celebration. The day begins with the 5K Run “Run for the Pies” followed by the Grand Parade, Vendor Village, Car Show and Bouncey Toys plus entertainment throughout downtown. At Tolt MacDonald Park activities include the 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament “Just Moo it,” live music, more vendors and a beer garden. The day ends with the FABULOUS FIREWORKS!!!
This year the Grand Marshal is the late AMAZING Lee Grumman. Lee passed away in early April 2018. She was asked to be the grand marshal in late February. Lee was a huge advocate of the City of Carnation. She was more than a resident and supported the community so much though the years with her Miller’s Mercantile business. She served on both the City Planning Board and the City Council. She was also the Mayor and Deputy Mayor in our community. Lee had a big heart and she will be missed but you will see a piece of her in the Grand Parade to honor her. “I am so happy that I had asked Lee to be our Grand Marshall and talk to her about it, why we had asked her this year. She said she was humbled to be asked.” Say Kim Lisk committee chair-person and parade organizer.
